- "I am in the temporal zone. Oh, I wish you could see this, Xneen. The birthplace of all creation. It is beautiful."

The temporal zone is the birthplace of all creation and acts as the space between time, like a limbo. It is commonly used by non-speedsters to travel through time using a timeship. Once the Legends have completed a mission, they usually dock their ship in the temporal zone.
The temporal zone can also be used to traverse the multiverse.
The Legends once crashed in a future, dystopian Star City in 2046. Unbeknownst to the group at the time, they had accidentally landed on Earth-16 rather than their own universe. It wasn't until three years later that they discovered their inter-dimensional jaunt.
When Nate and Ray were practicing fighting in the cargo bay, Nate was suddenly thrown through and out the door and into the temporal zone. Because of this, Nate landed in Feudal Japan alongside Ray, who also fell in to try and save him.
The Legends were temporarily trapped in the temporal zone when the Waverider was disabled because Marchosias had Zari Tarazi sabotage the vessel, the jump ship, and the time courier as he desired to kill them; ultimately, the ship was fixed mainly by Sara Lance and Ava Sharpe.
Gary Green opens a wormhole to the temporal zone in hopes that Sara Lance can escape his spaceship and return to late 2020; however, because of a battle with his girlfriend, Sara releases extraterrestrials into the temporal zone.

- Attempting to travel to the dawn of time via the temporal zone without a proper timeship is a bad idea, as the traveler would be exposed to deadly quantities of chronal radiation.
